Please excuse my ignorant question, but how do I change the tire on my 2012 Zinger 32QB? I tried backing one tire up on blocks, but that didn't work due to the way the axles are designed.

We discovered that using the little ramps didn't work, that it just appeared to make things twist instead of lifting the other tire. We ended up having to use the bottle jackfrom our truck to lift both tires up at the same time. Not sure of the exact placement that DH used though.

The factory will tell you to jack it up on the frame. I use the u-bolts as a jacking point.

cwit is right that the book says to raise the trailer by jacking on the frame.
If you have one of those ramps to drive up on, then then shouldn't be much weight left on the other tire. It should be easy to finish raising it high enough to change the tire by placing a jack under the axle.
